Yesterday I went to the Post Office and got caught in a fire drill, but that’s not the point. After we were allowed to return to the building, I peered into my box and found a package slip hidden among bills and magazine renewal notices. Ooooo, a package!
After picking it up I discovered it was from my one and only brother! And wow, was it light. (One time he mailed me a box of broken sea/vintage glass he found in his garage. I had a momentary heart attack about what package canon the Post Office launched that box out of to make it sound like that, before I realized it was SUPPOSED to sound like that. LOL.)
Anyhoo, once home I ripped into that box like it contained a lifetime supply of Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs and discovered something even better – YARN! My first yarn gift from my brother and his fabulous wonder woman. And they even made a special stop at a yarn store near a butterfly sanctuary for it. And it wasn’t even my birthday or anything!
Talk about the highpoint of my day!
So here it is in all its scrummy glory:
Schaefer Yarn Hand Painted Yarn. 55% Merino Wool Superwash, 30% Silk, 15% Nylon. 4 o.z./400 yards.
This yarn line is dedicated to memorable women and the colorway they chose for me is for Sophia Smith, the founder of Smith College.
So what should I knit with it? Any suggestions?
